Observation Trip to Typhoon Haiyan-Devastated Areas
As yet another follow-up to previous CALD initiatives on climate change, the Council summoned a delegation with participants from Cambodia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mongolia, Taiwan, and the Philippines to return to Haiyan-devastated areas in Eastern Visayas. The observation trip was organized as a part of CALD’s continuing effort to provide assistance to the victims of the super typhoon, and to promote awareness of climate change impacts. In the 2nd of May briefing that marked the start of the trip, Presidential Adviser on Environmental Protection Neric Acosta focused on the rehabilitation projects, their impacts, and other possible interventions that the victims may need. The highlight of the visit came on 4 May, when the participants had the chance to visit the beneficiaries of CALD sponsored shelters.
